Step 1 : Select cross-sectional shape of interest: values are side ratios (D/B)

Step 2 : Wind and Building Inputs
Building width (B), depth (D) and height (H)
  B : [m]   D : [m]   H : [m]
Building density (ρB), interstory height (ΔH), and radius of gyration (γ)
  ρB : [kg/m3]   ΔH : [m]   γ : [m]
Floor of interest (Floor#) and Acceptable % of people perceiving the motion (Xp%)
  Floor# :   Xp% : [%]  
Exposure Category
A (Large city center) B (Urban/Suburban) C (Open terrain)
Averaging time for the response estimation (T)
T = 10-min. T = 1-hour
3-sec Serviceability Gust wind velocity (V3-s) and Mean Recurrence Interval (MRI)
  V3-s : [m/s] MRI :  [year]
Modal information (mode shape, frequency and damping)
Uncoupled normalized modal exponent: φ=(z/H)β
  βx : βy : βθ :
Natural frequencies
  fx : [Hz] fy : [Hz] fθ : [Hz]
Damping ratios (e.g., 1% => enter 1)
  ζx : [%] ζy : [%] ζθ : [%]
